Happy Pi Day, everyone!

Have you seen Google’s special doodle for the occasion? Made by award-winning past chef and Cronut inventor, Dominique Ansel, the doodle features all the ways we love Pi/Pie. If you missed it, watch how Chef Ansel and everybody at Google made this tasty dedication happen.

But do you even know what that means? Or why are we celebrating a mathematical constant? Is it really an important day for everybody? Here’s fast facts you need and want to know about the very special and delicious sounding Pi.

What is PI anyway?

Pi represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, a vital part of the foundation of mathematics, most importantly geometry. Pi is equal to 3.14159, but this list can go on and on up to a trillion, it can even be infinite!

Why do people celebrate PI Day?

The day is celebrated every 3.14, March 14th, (the first numbers of the mathematical concept), dedicated to the mathematical constant, Pi. This celebration was first recognized 1988 by physicist Larry Shaw to celebrate with a slice of their favorite pie in honor of the number’s delicious sounding name.

Why is it so important?     

To answer this question as honestly as possible, it’s not. This is just a regular day made fun with baked pastry like pie and pizza! Who doesn’t love those, right?

Pi day is just a day made for all mathematicians and scientists to get the pie they deserve after all their hard work in researching and finding more about the world we live in day by day.

Did you get pie on Pi day? If not, visit the Windsor Tavern and go get some! Here’s what you can order:

CHICKEN PIE

A good old comfort food classic, a warm well-cooked crust pie filled with slow cooked chicken in creamy sauce with carrots, peas, and corns to fill your stomach with goodness.

GUINNESS STEAK PIE

This dish brings together two of Ireland’s famous products, beef and Guinness. Slowly cooked for a long time, this creates tender beef with Guinness that permeates the meat producing a thick sauce.

CHEESE TOMATO PIZZA

Oven-cooked dough with tomato sauce spread all over and topped with cheese and other condiments.

GARLIC PIZZA

Oven-cooked dough with garlic then topped with cheese to achieve a garlic yet creamy taste.

Even if it’s not the 14th of March anymore, we’d still like to greet everyone a Happy Pi Day! Hope you all had a good slice of pie to celebrate.

There are so many choices to complement your go-to cocktail and beer at the Windsor Tavern. Go visit us at the 2nd Floor of the Humana Wellness Center, Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay Road, Barangay Don Jose, Sta. Rosa City, Laguna.
